Marvel Has A Big Surprise Coming, Here’s A Clue

Marvel Has A Big Surprise Coming, Here’s A Clue image
The next few weeks are going to be rather huge for Marvel Studios. This Friday will see the release of their first Netflix series, Daredevil; then Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron will be dropping on May 1st; and soon after that the company will begin production on Joe and Anthony Russo’s Captain America: Civil War. That’s all pretty huge stuff, but evidently it’s not enough, as now a big Avengers announcement has been scheduled for tomorrow morning.

This extremely exciting news comes to us from Marvel Cinematic Universe star Robert Downey Jr. himself, who teased the special reveal on his personal Twitter account. In addition to revealing that there will be big Avengers news tomorrow morning on Good Morning America, he also presented us fans with a rather cryptic image as well:

Given the source of the tease, the metallic plates, and the red and gold coloring, it’s pretty clear that what we’re looking at is a close-up of some kind of Iron Man-related “thing” – but what the hell is it? Is it a new suit of armor? Is it something bigger? Is it some kind of vehicle? (UPDATE #1: As one of our commenters pointed out below, it looks like this shot is a closeup of Iron Man’s shoulder from his character poster). Perhaps even more importantly, what’s up with the very strange and very specific white spaces. My first instinct is to look at them as letters, but that still doesn’t really clear things up.

Because the image isn’t much help, let’s look at this mystery from another angle. It’s interesting to note that Downey Jr. says “Avengers announcement” as opposed to “Iron Man” announcement, and while that could be a reference to The Avengers: Age of Ultron, what if it is instead something to do with The Avengers: Infinity War? That movie is certainly many years away, but Marvel Studios has earned a reputation for always thinking 10 steps ahead.

Without more information, it’s tricky to figure out this puzzle at face value – and hopefully throughout the day we see more clues pop up and give us more of a hint of what to expect. Of course, speculation is always fun, and this is a fun and exciting jumping off point to do just that. Hit the comments section below to tell us both what you think the image is and what you think the big announcement is going to be tomorrow. And be sure to come back in the morning, because you can be sure that we will have full coverage of what goes down!

UPDATE #2: The official Good Morning America Twitter account has posted a clue of their own, which appears to be Hawkeye-centric, and has more of what now definitely appear to be big white letters. Check it out below:

UPDATE #3: Now the official Jimmy Kimmel Live! Twitter account has chimed in with their own post, this one featuring Captain America’s chest star. It’s pretty clear that the letters here say “Jimmy,” and as one of our commenters pointed out below, it looks like the lettering in the Iron Man image above is very similar to the logo of Jimmy Kimmel Live!

PREVENGERS

I’m kinda stoked…

HELL, THAT WAS SUPERB

They should give the guy who made this trailer a job.

The Civil War by the way is the thing that actually made me a Cap fan. Up until then I didn’t think much of Cap, thought he was mainly just a “take your orders kid, drug enhanced pretty boy” – an empty (and far too brightly-colored) suit.

When the Civil War broke out I thought, “Hell, he acts like a real man, and he ain’t just a governmental step and fetchit, Washingtonian-lackey after all.”

Ever since then I’ve really liked the charcater.

I’ve really liked him in the films.

This Fan-Made CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Trailer is Blowing Our Minds

With the marketing campaign of Avengers: Age of Ultron steadily underway, we couldn’t be more excited to see all our favorite MCU heroes get together again for another round of Joss Whedon directed excellence. However, one of Marvel’s most prevalent tricks is about making the audience care about not what’s coming up, but what’s coming next. But how do you do that with an Avengers film? Well by promising something even crazier on its follow-up.

As announced in the final quarter of last year, the upcoming Captain America: Civil War is going to feature an all out brawl (we hope) between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark that will also include a first time appearance by Black Panther. However, summer 2016 is still a long ways away, but thanks to one clever fan, that wait just became a little more bearable:

If the actual movie is even half as good as this fan-made trailer, then we’re going to be in for something really special. This is exactly the kind of thing we want to see take place in the upcoming Captain America threequel – a lot of moral conflict between Tony and Steve that boilers over into some of the best action sequences since Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Yes, we have no doubt we’ll be blown clean out of our socks this May by Age of Ultron, but we may have even higher hopes now for Civil War, and that isn’t a bad thing. Applause to Alex86 for the amazing trailer work.

Captain America: Civil War hits theaters May 6th, 2016.

What do you think of this Civil War fan trailer? Let us know in the comments below.

ULTRON TRIUMPHANT

You know, in the Marvel Universe why would anyone in their right mind bother to live in New York City?

I AM IRON MAN

Iron-Man-3-Review

Downey hemmed, hawed, said that Marvel is planning a whole lot of movies. “We’re in the middle of negotiation,” he explained. Ellen didn’t roll her eyes, but she kind of rolled her eyes. “Okay, yes,” he said.No other information is available about the movie, and it’s doubtful that Marvel will announce anything official until after the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron. The studio currently has a few open release slots throughout 2017 and 2018–not to mention the possibility that they could announce tomorrow that they’ve decided to release Iron Man 4 on March 25, 2016, just to mess with Warner Bros. The Iron Man movies have generally charted their own path with the character, taking story arcs like “Extremis” or characters like the Mandarin and putting an entirely new spin on them. So the movie probably won’t be called Iron Man: Armor Wars, even though the Shoulderpad Suit deserves the cinematic treatment, and Iron Man probably won’t meet King Arthur, even though that seems like an ideal role for Benedict Cumberbatch or Michael Fassbender or your other favorite British person.

It’s also worth pointing out that Downey merely confirmed there would be an Iron Man 4 but didn’t specifically state he would be in the movie–which could lead a conspiracy theorist to assume that Iron Man 4 will star Don Cheadle’s War Machine…
